SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (SIOUXFALLS.BUSINESS) - Two sisters who found they had to go to the Twin Cities to find their ideal wedding dresses are hoping to keep the search closer to home for other brides.

Erin Rallis and Kayla Thompson are opening Marie & Marie Bridal on the third floor of Equity Square at Eighth Street and Phillips Avenue.

“We’ve both been married in the last five years and realized there’s an opportunity for a higher-end boutique that really catered to the bride,” Rallis said. “It’s something we’re both really passionate about, which made us excited, so that combined with the need in Sioux Falls made us give it a go.”

The sisters grew up in Sioux Falls but left for college. They both have business degrees – Rallis from the University of Minnesota and Thompson from the University of Nebraska.
